Lynn Johnson’s series Water Warriors captures the daily war women in Kenya wage against the deceptively simple task of bringing water to their families and communities. Walking for two hours or two days, these warriors face numerous obstacles and difficult terrain in their quest for an essential ingredient for life: water. Johnson took this image at a time of lingering drought in northern Kenya, when many women were forced to travel up to three days to find water, most of which was contaminated. Johnson is a National Geographic Explorer Fellow, and the recipient of the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for Coverage of the Disadvantaged.
